    Independents are deciding and this will help them in that decision.

    The significance is not that the endorsement will change votes, rather the it was the opinion of that particular editorial board the Romney would make a better president for the next 4 years. It is one of the few remaining print media outlets that isn't just partisan hackery.

    Re: Des Moines Register Endorses Romney

    What is more interesting is that Obama talked to the editorial staff for a half hour - and only after said "This is off record, right?"

    And the editorial staff said "huh? What? Well... OK."

    And then endorsed Romney. ROFL!!!!

    Geez, I wonder what Obama said that after the fact he declared "oh, what I just said if off-record!"

    Guess Obama's secret off-record comments didn't impress the editors too much.

    But we'll never know what because "its off record." What an idiot! You ask to go off record BEFORE you talk!

    Endorsements don't have any effect.

    But it's a glimpse into the mood of Iowa, anyway.
